While the term 'make' implies, to me at least, I should be crafting a hat out of newspaper, I guess you'll let me slide if I knit one instead.
|Make a Hat|
I've been on a brief vacation from knitting with my normal wool. This hat is being knit with acrylic yarn I picked up during a recent my-dog-is-sick pity party I threw myself at the local big box craft store. I walked into the store, let the party begin & just started tossing things into my cart. I almost had to get two carts. Luckily, almost the entire store was on sale. I threw so much yarn into my cart, I practically doubled my yarn stash, and let's don't even talk about the stamping and drawing supplies I bought. I haven't rubber stamped since the '90's and I didn't even enjoy it that much back then. And drawing?? Have you ever seen me draw? Nope! I do not draw. Oh well. It was all on sale, it made me feel better (at least until the bill comes in) and now I have some really great things to donate to the library's arts & craft box.
The shopping excursion/pity party wasn't a total waste though. I've already knit several hats and a pair of mittens with the yarn I purchased. The rubber stamps make great paper weights (one even has a cute sheep on it!) and my calendar is now nice and colorful with all the art pen notes I've made.
And that hat in the photo - it's not really that cherry read pictured. It's more of a deep maroon that my camera/phone/computer refuses to acknowledge.
So, what about you? Are you making a hat today? If so, share a photo or a link in the comments below. I'd love to see your creation(s).
